Okay - something strange is happening here. I tried the attached patch
in order to use the standard physical memory range allocator (top down,
instead of forcing phys = virt) , but this causes my test Fedora Core 12
PPC32 ISO image to hang just after "returning from prom_init".
Andreas - can you take a look at this and see if I'm doing something
obviously wrong in PPC land? I can't understand why changing the
underlying physical addresses causes the PPC kernel boot to fail when
the same phys -> virt mappings are still in place.
I'm fairly sure this is the right fix and the patch shows no regressions
